The fight for Little Round Top on July 2, 1863, is forever etched in the annals of America's Civil War. The heroic defence of the high ground by Joshua Chamberlain and the men of the 20th Maine is one of the most famous incidents in American history, made more so by its powerful depiction in the film Gettysburg . There are numerous written accounts of the Union defenders on Little Round Top but considerably less has been written,up to now,about the Confederate attackers who charged up the hill and faced an even more desperate challenge than those who defended it. Unique and colourful, this new study brings to life the men and officers of the 15th Alabama who gathered that day to assault the Union flank. The lively narration of this dramatic engagement is both detailed and authoritative. Veteran Civil War author Phillip Tucker colourfully evokes the men and the times,from descriptions of the Alabamans' Chattahoochee River valley home to sketches of the lives and personalities of William C. Oates and other key members of the regiment.
